Families from coast-to-coast will come along on a breathtaking and uplifting wilderness adventure when Anchor Bay Entertainment unleashes Against the Wild on DVD and digital download for the first time. The action-packed feature film tells the dramatic tale of two siblings and their Alaskan Malamute, who must make an emergency landing when their small plane has engine problems. They find themselves in a beautiful but potentially dangerous natural environment that they must overcome together. Written and directed by Richard Boddington, starring CJ Adams (The Odd Life of Timothy Green, Dan in Real Life), Erin Pitt (Silent Hill: Revelation 3D, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam and the upcoming American Girl: Isabelle Dances into the Spotlight) and Natasha Henstridge (“She Spies,” The Whole Nine Yards) and co-starring John Tench (Tooth Fairy), the film makes its national retail and digital debut on March 11, 2014.
A gripping adventure for the whole family, Against the Wild (SRP $24.98) begins with siblings Zach (Adams) and Hannah (Pitt) traveling by seaplane with Chinook, their Alaskan Malamute, to visit their father (Ted Whittall of “Beauty & The Beast”) for the weekend. When their plane encounters engine trouble, the pilot is forced to make an emergency landing in the woods in the middle of nowhere. As they travel on foot to seek help, Zach, Hannah and their loyal companion come face-to-face with the challenges of the wilds – from wolves and grizzly bears to forest fires. Using all the wilderness skills they know – and with some help from Chinook, the siblings must work together to overcome each obstacle and conquer the ultimate goal – returning home again.
An exciting, fast-paced adventure with beautiful cinematography and a stirring musical score performed by a live 65-piece orchestra in Prague, Against the Wild will keep the whole family on the edge of their seat from start to finish.

OUR THOUGHTS :
I sat down this afternoon with my 3 kids to watch this movie. Right from the start, it was fast-paced, engaging, and had a great storyline. The acting is very good, and the scenery is absolutely breathtaking.
My kids were absolutely sucked into this story, and were cheering Zach, Hannah, and their dog, Chinook on as they navigated their way through a vast forest in search of any signs of human life. They met many, many dangers along the way, and their quick thinking along with the loyalty of their dog helped them eventually find their way to safety.
I don't want to give away too many spoilers, though, so you'll definitely want to check out this movie for yourself. It's a fantastic, heartwarming adventure that will definitely have you on the edge of your seat. It's also very family-friendly and doesn't have any inappropriate language or sexual content. We give Against the Wild 2 Thumbs Up!
